If you never made rock candy in science class as an elementary schooler, you missed out. Fear not though, it is quite easy to make, and this is where you learn how.
Things you need:
Food colouring (optional)
What to do:
Mix the sugar into the water. Mix LOTS of sugar into the water.
Add food colouring of your choice (skip this step if you chose to exclude food colouring).
Tie one end of the string to a stick.
Dip the other end of the string into the bucket of sugar water, with the stick resting on the mouth of the bucket (like its holding up the string).
Try to get the string as close to the bottom of the pail as possible (or as much of it submerged as possible).
Let this apparatus sit near a window in sunlight.
Come back after a day or so to find rock candy!!
